If only more people heard this speech before the referendum perhaps the result would have been different. One thing I can say for sure, is that Scotland will be independent, the people have woken up, never before has a country been so politically aware and driven, so united in the fight for independence.

Scotland Will Never Get What It Wants Unless It’s Independent
Below is a selection of the most heard reasons, comments and opinions from Yes-voters.
1. Taking Responsibility by moving all Governing Powers to Scotland
You would like to get the opportunity to move more responsibilities to a more local Scottish Democracy instead of accept the fate of Westminster’s plans? With all the powers moved to Scotland, we can make a fairer Scotland.

2. Get the Government we choose
The Tories are in power in the UK, although the majority of Scots have chosen the opposition. The Scots are outnumbered ten to one, so whatever government the Scots will vote for in a UK General Election, it’s highly unlikely that a Scottish Political Party will ever be part of a UK Government representing Scotland’s needs. With the rising votes for UKIP in England, our goals towards a fair and harmonious society will diminish even further.

3. No more building Nuclear Weapons
We should stop building Nuclear Weapons in Scotland, it is unethical and morally wrong. Under “The Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons” the UK expects all other countries to sign this agreement to disarm Nuclear Weapons, but has excluded itself. Under the treaty it continues to build more Nuclear Weapons in Scotland. If you believe in peace instead of war, let’s stop building weapons of mass destruction and start caring for the people and the planet.

4. Securing Oil Funds in North Sea
Scotland’s Oil reserves are vast. Most of the revenue and tax made from Oil goes directly to Westminster. There are claims that Scotland will be one of the wealthiest nations in Europe if we become independent.

5. Scotland has the resources and finances
Scotland has the resources and finances to become independent. One of the early myths created by the No Campaign has been debunked and even the Unionists agree that Scotland has what it takes to become independent and the Scottish people will be better off financially.

6. Believing in the creation of more jobs
With an ever rising energy and electricity demand in Europe, Scotland could be one of the global leading suppliers. Scotland has many natural resources that allow sustainable energy for which more jobs are created. Furthermore when Scotland becomes Independent, many centralized services and offices, like Tax Offices, DVLA etc have to be set up in Scotland. This will create many jobs and jobs provide an income, which is good for the economy and beneficial for us all.

7. Believing in the benefits for Scotland and yourself as individual
Not only will there be more jobs, the future Government already has plans for creating better Healthcare and improve the situation for Pensioners and people with children. We’ll keep the minimum wages, scrap the bedroom tax, etc.

8. Believing in a more equal wages
The difference in wage in London compared to Scotland for example is huge. This gap is growing and with the current UK Government the richest only seem to get richer and the poor becoming poorer. With a smaller gap between the highest and lowest incomes, there will be less jealousy, greed and more happiness.

9. Believing that Scotland and England have opposite Political and Social views
We love Scotland and we love England. Why should both countries suffer from having to compromise political decisions to please both sides? Let’s respect each other and go our own way. In doing so, we’ll become better friends and neighbours then we are ever going to be in a forced political marriage.
